Janaki, Daughter of the Dirt - San Francisco Premiere


Published September 17, 2011


World Premiere of Janaki, Daughter of the Dirt

Staged by Siren Theatre Productions (www.sirentheatre.org)
September 16 -18, 2011

Come join Lalitha as she walks the line between myth and reality with the help of her personal superhero, Janaki.

But who is Janaki? She is the heroine of an ancient Hindu epic, the Ramayana. She is the most perfect woman who's ever lived. She is untouchable. Or so we thought. Her story, it turns out, is more than a story. It is the battle song of people from the north colonizing the south, of priests chanting a code of servitude, of men demanding women walk through fire. But it is also the story of resistance. Can Lalitha learn the striking truth about her ancestors in time to save herself?
